It's nice to know that my owner-built 1930 house actually has a nameable "style". :-)

My Minimal Traditional Home built in the 50's, and it is 735 sq feet. I bought the home in 2011 and same builder built all homes in the neighborhood with same floor plan, I have been in 3 neighbor's homes, they all have the same one level floor plan, 2 bedroom/1 tiny bathroom. I love my home and decorate with mid century furniture pieces , creating a warm and comfy home. Hardwood floors throughout will need to refinish in a few years. Previous owners removed the laminate countertop with metal trim. The neighbors have a pretty soft yellow laminate countertop /backsplash. Love my home!
